A Land Remembered
has become Florida's favorite novel.
Now this Student Edition in two volumes makes this rich, rugged story of
the American pioneer spirit more accessible to young readers. Patrick
Smith tells of three generations of the MacIveys, a Florida family
battling the hardships of the frontier. The story opens in 1858, when
Tobias and Emma MacIvey arrive in the Florida wilderness with their son,
Zech, to start a new life, and ends in 1968 with Solomon MacIvey, who
realizes that his wealth has not been worth the cost to the land.
Between is a sweeping story rich in Florida history with a cast of
memorable characters who battle wild animals, rustlers, Confederate
deserters, mosquitoes, starvation, hurricanes, and freezes to carve a
kingdom out of the Florida swamp.
In this volume, meet young
Zech MacIvey, who learns to ride like the wind through the Florida scrub
on Ishmael, his marshtackie horse, his dogs, Nip and Tuck, at this
side. His parents, Tobias and Emma, scratch a living from the land,
gathering wild cows from the swamp and herding them across the state to
market. Zech learns the ways of the land from the Seminoles, with whom
his life becomes entwined as he grows into manhood.
